Nashville tacked on multiple runs against four different Chihuahuas pitchers before Hector Ambriz, Branch Kloess and Jerry Sullivan tossed scoreless innings each out of the El Paso bullpen.
The Chihuahuas used seven pitchers in the loss. Yeison Asencio went 3-for-4 with a home run in his second Triple-A game. Asencio is now 5-for-6 in two games since arriving from Double-A San Antonio.
The Chihuahuas night looked promising when newcomer, Yeison Asencio and Adam Moore each had a home run in the second inning.
But in the third inning, Cody Decker had a 2-Run home run called foul after he had round the bases and the whole complexion of the game changed.
